Sound Waves get your wash clean (Jun, 1951)

Yesterday on Boing Boing Gadgets one of their excellent new writers, John Brownlee, posted this ultrasonic dish cleaner. Well here’s my counterpoint: a not-so-ultrasonic laundry cleaner, AKA The Hooter! It only takes 5 minutes of unbearable loudness to clean your little tub of clothes.

Sound Waves get your wash clean, claims Robert Bosch of Stuttgart, Germany. This seven-pound machine works on principle of auto horn. Hooter must sound for five minutes. Cost is $32.

    “Honey, when I said I wanted a Bosch washing machine, this isn’t what I meant!”

    The model looks quite skeptical.

    Principal of an auto horn? So instead of loading up the washing machine I should just pile-up the dirth clothes in front of my car and honk the horn…………
